The temperature hit 22 degrees celcius in Vancouver last week!  That is 71.6 degrees fahrenheit for y’all.  I spent last weekend cleaning off my balcony and planting my container garden.  I am also in full warm weather sewing mode, finally getting a chance to use all those bright colours and spring florals I picked up over the past 6 months.  How are things where you are?  Are you still enjoying your winter makes?  Are you committing 100% to your rain-boots?  Are you also experiencing unusually warm weather?  I hope so, it is pretty magical here these days 🙂
